The background of my paintings are usually just the
white watercolour paper, if they look tonal this is just the camera
flash, I'm afraid photography is not my specialty :-) I paint onto a
variety of different sizes and my framing advice page may help you
choose your own frame. With the miniature paintings, also known as ACEO
size, they come with an Ultra Pro soft
clear polypropylene (acid free, no PVC) protection sleeve. The mini
easel stands are not included, but you can
easily buy these elsewhere for around £2.
About The Art & Artist:
If you look very carefully on each watercolour painting with ink detail , you will eventually find one of my own personal secret markings , its a small face in ink (eyes, nose & smile), mixed in amongst all the swirls of the pen work :-) some people look and look and can not find it for a long time but there is one on there , although only a couple of mm in size.
All paintings are signed by myself Sophie Appleton, popular contemporary artist in the U.K. I have sold to some big hotels and my first gallery was in Leicestershire in 2011. A world wide site released ten of my designs on post cards in May 2012 running as its most popular designs, for two years. Also a Gallery in Lincolnshire sold my paintings from September 2012 for two years. So its been a busy few years selling over 1300 hand painted artworks. In November 2015 my husband and I launched 'Country Swirls' where we put my designs onto sweatshirts & Gifts (see my 'sweatshirts & gifts' page). March 2016 I started to make replicas of newly created paintings (Prints). For my latest adventure in June 2016 I have started painting miniature ACEO size watercolours. The biggest technical change was in July 2016, a free phone app for art loving new and return customers, which I designed and made myself called 'Swirly Soph Art'. In August 2016 I joined in with the blogging nation and began several different blogs on prints, originals, bargains, freebies etc.
I thoroughly enjoy painting each picture and love it even more to know that it will bring you pleasure looking at them too. I will only use top quality watercolour paper and paints as the colours float and mix much better giving a brighter fresh look.
I usually leave a gap around the actual image for you to cut the painting down smaller to fit different frame sizes . The image size given is approximate.
My watercolour art works are unframed, so if you need advice on how to choose the best frame for you then please visit my 'Framing Advice' Page.
Copyright of each painting / embroidery design remains with myself Sophie Appleton and any copying or printing will result in legal action. The wording 'COPYRIGHT Sophie Appleton' will not be on the front of your painting , it is just on the screen to deter direct printing from my web site.
All current stock of paintings are kept in my art folder in plastic sleeves until ready to post, so no unwanted marks, rips or creases. Brand new, unused watercolour paintings, unframed.
Please note that colours may vary due to monitor colour settings and my own photography.
